If I get a papercut, can I stop?  
Save me.

I'm finally wading through all the bill paying, correspondence and paperwork minutia that's been building up for three weeks.

And balancing the checkbook.

Which seems to be freaking impossible.  Math + Carrie = Artichokes. 

I'm sorry, did that not make sense?  Yeah, now you see why balancing the checkbook is a nightmare for me.  

'It's just addition and subtraction," you say.  "HA!" I say.  I take the phrase 'liberal arts major" to a whole new level.

Nolan's taken the boys to do something or other.  I should probably finish this before they get back.


Edit:  Difference of $0.40 between the bank statement and the checkbook. I call that a WIN.

Awww.. I'm still amazed that people balance their chequebooks. I just look at my balance online and then shop. ;)

Good Luck! (I have a birthday party this afternoon... YAY me! *gags*)

"What do you mean I don't have any money? I have checks left!"

Birthday parties. The suck.

You can totally get out of it!

How many times does that work to our advantage?

More power to you. I check my balance online. Your equation is exactly how I feel about math. ;)

Eeps, must run...soccer tourney this afternoon.

Math is tough. But your icon is hysterical.

We were talking about this yesterday. Yay! Congrats!
I suppose it's my turn now.

That was the catalyst (our conversation) for me gathering it all up and doing it! Yay! It's done. Now I can start gathering for another pile. :P

I refuse to balance the checkbook. That's what overdraft's for, right? *snorts*

Overdraft makes Nolan twitchy.

The only time I go more in depth than checking the online balance is when I notice excessive debits and I haven't benefitted from them :)
Carrie Leigh: tea makes it bettercarrie_leigh on May 25th, 2008 12:36 pm (UTC)
Oh, I do loathe the excessive debits that don't benefit me.

Are you feeling better? And you're in the future! Happy Birthday!!!!

Thanks for the birthday wishes *hugs* I didn't think it was possible, but I actually feel worse *sigh* As soon as I get the kids to school I'm going back to bed!

hehehe! Everybody is funny!

I balance my checkbook, too, Carrie. *g*

If I don't balance it, Nolan gets grumpy. And I prefer hubs to be sweet and cuddly, when all the numbers match up!
